Definition of Talisman
A talisman is any item that is carried by a person to help to protect them from harm or enhance their good fortune. Nearly any symbol can be used as a talisman. You can make one yourself or have your priest or magical person like a shaman make one for you. They can be simple, or ornate. The magic is in what you believe, not what the talisman does for you.

Ephemerides come in either midnight or noon versions, and show you where the planets are (or were for a date in the past or will be for a date in the future) at either midnight or noon GMT.Read the full Ephemeris definition
